Lalisa Manobal or Blackpink Lisa is the newest ambassador of MAC Cosmetics.  

She was chosen for her strong global influence in pop culture, speaks to a wide range of consumers and encourages conversations and trends within and outside the beauty industry. 

Lisa is the first female K-pop idol to be appointed as MAC’s global brand ambassador title. 

The rapper, singer Blackpink said that this is a dream come true for her as she is a huge fan of the cosmetics line and has been a loyal user of the brand.  

She said that she’s always been interested in makeup and fashion.   But she fell in love with makeup after her debut.  Lisa enjoys trying out new looks.  She even suggests them in photoshoots for magazines.  

She remembers that her first MAC product is a lip product.

“I’m still a huge fan of MAC’s lip products. I  love playing around with the countless number of colors and textures to choose from to help perfect my look,” she said. 


Lisa shares her beauty tips.  “I usually enjoy natural make-up. I like to start with a simple base and finish with a slightly bolder lip color to add some vibrance.  Especially for lip makeup, I like to make an ombre lip that naturally gradates by tapping from the center of my lips!”

The rapper and dancer  said that she likes collaborating with makeup artists.  

“I constantly review various makeup looks for inspiration.  When I’m on a shoot, I like suggesting makeup styles that I have been eager to try. I enjoy working together with the makeup artist to finalize my look through different attempts to eventually suit the mood I am trying to express in the shoot,” she said.

Lisa is known to be charismatic onstage yet adorable offstage.  She was born in Thailand and debuted as part of BLACKPINK in 2016.  A documentary of how the group began was released on Netflix this month.
